The multimodal complex welcomes another strong tenant. DHL Express took over the building in the revitalized part of Brno Airport area.
The long-neglected and dilapidated part of the Brno Airport complex, which also included the infamous army gathering place, was given a new coat thanks to the investment of the Accolade Group. The modern hall, with an area of 3,700 m2, awarded the BREEAM sustainability certification of the "Excellent" level, has been leased by the global logistic leader DHL Express. The company is thus expanding the number of tenants and the new building is another part of the process of modernizing the multimodal complex in the vicinity of the second busiest airport in the Czech Republic.
"We have successfully completed the next stage of the modernization of the multimodal complex around Brno Airport, and I am glad that space, which has long been unjustly overlooked, has been given a new, modern coat. At the same time, we are responding to the current needs of the market and to the last months, which have clearly shown that quality logistics is the basis for the functioning of the world economy in any situation. Of course, I firmly believe that our new star tenant will soon also opt for a step towards the air freight. The premises, strategic position at the airport and the equipment of the Brno terminal give it the best conditions for this," says Milan Kratina, CEO of the Accolade Group, which operates Brno Airport and also finances and owns the multimodal complex.
"From September 14, 2020, we are at a new address, in a new modern hall at a strategic location for the region of South Moravia and Vysočina. We have a state-of-the-art sorting line with a capacity of 3,600 pieces per hour. We purchased an electric eCrafter for quiet and ecological delivery in Brno. This year has shown very clearly the importance of a reliable and flexible transport network. The new premises in Brno allow us to be even closer to our clients and to support their business even better. DHL is constantly investing in new infrastructure worldwide, and we in the Czech Republic are part of this continuous development. I believe that our customers will appreciate the new terminal and all other benefits. Of course, the strategic location at the airport opens up new possibilities for the future,” says Luděk Drnec, CEO of DHL Express (Czech Republic).
„While the whole world is looking for a coronavirus vaccine, the economy needs a similar vaccine, and one of its components is certainly modern logistics, which ensures fast and reliable transport of goods and materials. I believe that thanks to DHL Express we will finally be able to fully develop the potential of a unique location in Brno. The building, bulit on the brownfield, meets all standards of modern sustainable construction and, with BREEAM certification of the Excellent level, is one of the most environmentally friendly industrial buildings in Central Europe,“ added Klára Sobotková, Commercial Director Panattoni for Czech Republic and Slovakia.
